Can solar panels handle the change in weather conditions in Dubai? The case of Dubai Refreshment Company by Aisha Saif Al Shaer( )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dubai Refreshment Company in the United Arab Emirates has installed a solar photovoltaic system on its factory roof. The company's chief executive officer, Tarek El Sakka, noticed that the efficiency of the panels had decreased, learning that high temperatures in Dubai's summer and the adhesion of dust to the solar panels can reduce their rate of electricity generation. To improve efficiency, El Sakka and his team can install a cooling system on the solar panels. Alternatively, they can hire more employees to clean the panels. The company will have to outsource the cleaning services. However, most cleaning companies will take some time in providing the full number of cleaners since these workers usually come from overseas. The availability of photovoltaic cleaning equipment also consumes time

Resourcing strategies for a robust response : a case study of the Environmental Agency of Abu Dhabi, UAE by Humaid Ali Alkindi( )

1 edition published in 2022 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Environment Agency of Abu Dhabi (EAD) is a competent authority founded 24 years ago to protect and preserve Abu Dhabi Emirate's (the Emirate) environment. One of EAD's roles is to address environmental incidents, which will lead to sustainable economic growth. The EAD disaster response mechanism has mainly targeted the main city of Abu Dhabi, being the federal capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). However, other areas (e.g., Al Dhafra and Al Ain regions) are also deemed main cities within the Emirate, where two EAD offices are located, both of which lack the skilled emergency resources required to respond to environmental incidents. Jasem Al Shehhi (Al Shehhi), the EAD's Emergencies and Crises Manager, is responsible for establishing environmental response teams in both regions to reduce the response time taken to respond to incidents within those regions. However, since they lack competent environmental emergency responders in both regional offices, Al Shehhi is finding it difficult to resource the professional emergency workforce. Should Al Shehhi take advantage of adopting an internal resourcing approach utilizing the human capital available at EAD headquarters who possess expertise and knowledge in the emergency management field and relocating them to EAD regional offices? Or should he embrace an external resourcing strategy by hiring new experienced workers? Which resourcing strategy would contribute to achieving the EAD vision to reduce the emergency response time in both regions?
When is business acquisition a good growth strategy? : ANHB Group and Hatta Honey of Dubai by Hanan H Abdulla( )

1 edition published in 2022 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mr. Al Qasimi chairs ANHB Group, a company centered on honeybee sustainability in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Faced with the opportunity to acquire an existing honey business that has shown significant losses, he must understand the key risks and benefits of this investment-intensive decision. The firm, Dubai-based Hatta Honey, was facing numerous challenges. The primary concern was that the firm was struggling to produce cost-effective products. Apart from that, there was a lack of qualified and skilled staff in the management and bee-keeping operations, which affected business outcomes. Moreover, the business lacked a brand identity in the local market, effective financial management, standard internal controls, and efficient processes. All of this contributed to a year-on-year net loss of 17% (company internal source). When presented with these details in a feasibility report, Mr. Al Qasimi was faced with a decision: should he go ahead with the acquisition, and if so, how can he reduce risk and transform the company to make it profitable?
Dar Al Zomorod strives to sustain the operation during COVID-19 by Mesheal Abdulmohsen Alabdulrahman( )

1 edition published in 2022 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Dar Al Zomorod Company, which supplies medical devices, equipment and supplies for surgery rooms, and dialysis devices sourced from outside the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, is facing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has created major social and economic challenges that have negatively impacted health, trade, and other sectors around the world. Companies have been affected by their governments' implementation of mandatory bans and business restrictions, leading to the closure of some factories in the fields of manufacturing laboratories, laboratory products, and medical supplies. The pandemic has generated an accumulation of requests that have posed challenges to companies' supply chain management and weighed heavily on hospitals, as some intensive care units have reached patient capacity and warned that they are at risk of running out of basic equipment. According to the chief executive officer of Dar Al Zomorod, Dr. Abdullah Al-Shouli, the changes which have occurred in the global medical trade have affected his company's mission to provide the Kingdom with the most advanced and sophisticated medical technologies from reliable factories around the world, as it strives to meet the welfare needs of its consumers
Maqta Gateway : the digital bridge between Abu Dhabi Trade and the World by Noora M Al Zaabi( )

1 edition published in 2022 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maqta Gateway (MG) L.L.C. has been mandated by the Abu Dhabi Executive to develop and operate the Advanced Trade and Logistics Platform (ATLP) to provide a single window (SW) for importers and exporters operating from industrial and free zones, while facilitating trade through sea, land, and air. This primary project forms a challenging task for MG and its CEO, Dr. Noura Al Dhaheri, as no SW system with this scope has ever been implemented in the Gulf region. To establish the foundation for the SW, Al Dhaheri will have to synchronize more than 30 governments and 70 private entities, integrating their backend systems with the SW and replacing their isolated customers' journeys with the streamlined and unified ones offered in the ATLP, within a period of two years. The system will significantly improve customer and stakeholder experiences while conducting trade- and logistics-related transactions in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi. It will enable trade activities between multiple entities, improving the ease of doing business transactions and facilitating trade within the emirate by providing harmonized digital services that meet the standards of several international organizations. This case study presents an overview of the strategic management directions for the ATLP implementation and the processes involved in synchronizing these entities within a short time. This case study will determine whether MG's top management team led by Al Dhaheri should focus only on the core services for trade and logistics or also include value-added services in the first release. Questions that will be addressed in this case study include the following: What steps should MG take to determine the scope of work for the ATLP? Will external aspects impact the deadline for implementing the project? If so, how will Al Dhaheri manage to shorten the proposed plan from five years to two years?
Boomah Owl Café of Abu Dhabi : in pursuit of a new business concept? by Haya Hamad Al Ameri( )

1 edition published in 2022 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mohamed Al Shehhi's plan to open a business, Boomah Cafe with resident owls, emerged after his frequent visits to Tokyo, Japan. Since 2014 he had been traveling to Tokyo and observing tourists at several owl cafes in the city. These cafes allowed visitors to eat, relax, and pet owls - which acted as therapy to 'tired hearts'. However, opening up an owl cafe of his own in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) was not a comfortable journey. The cafe's launch was complicated by the need to obtain a food license from the Food Safety Authority and a trade license from the departments of Economic Development and Tourism and Commerce Marketing. This step alone took seven months and only concluded after several rounds of negotiations and confidence-building with civil officers. Receiving the pet license from the Ministry of Climate Change and Environment, which was the final formal authority hurdle to open an animal-themed restaurant in the UAE, took another three months. In addition, 15 days after the soft launch of the cafe, Al Shehhi and his partners faced grave socio-cultural challenges, as he had already anticipated. The population of Abu Dhabi, the majority of whom are Muslims, believed in the superstition that owls bring bad luck - a potential threat to the business's popularity. Therefore, on 3 March 2020, Al Shehhi conducted a meeting with his two partners. The meeting was held to develop a marketing strategy to establish Boomah Cafe as a prominent brand name in the animal-themed food and beverages sector of Abu Dhabi specifically, the UAE generally, and as an educational platform for the general masses, thereby changing their negative perception towards owls. Will Boomah thrive in UAE's food and beverages sector as a pet-friendly cafe brand, thereby making its mark among the domestic and foreign tourists? Will it be able to change the perception of the general public towards owls, and act towards their conservation through an interactive approach?
Emirates Waste to Energy Company : sustainable, renewable energy from waste by Meerah Mohammed Al Dhaheri( )

1 edition published in 2022 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In September 2015, Khaled Al Huraimel, group chief executive officer (GCEO) of Sharjah Environment Company, LLC (Bee'ah), called a meeting of his top management team at the head office. They discussed a change in direction at Bee'ah with regard to the utilization of waste that was being dumped in Sharjah's landfills as a source of fuel for producing energy. Those attended the meeting were Mohammed Quraishi, CEO of Bee'ah Energy, Daker El Rabaya, managing director of waste processing, and Mohamed Al Hosani, managing director of environmental consultancy and services at Bee'ah. Khaled Al Huraimel suggested to Mohammed Quraishi that Bee'ah could improve waste management practice, and make it sustainable, by establishing a plant to produce electricity from fuel generated from waste. He pointed out that such a scheme would solve the problem of overflowing waste dumps and instead create a source of cheap power. Al Huraimel's plan was to create a company to accomplish this waste transformation-- the Emirates Waste to Energy Company (EWTE). The project was sponsored as a joint venture between Bee'ah, the Middle East's sustainability pioneer, and the Masdar Company, Abu Dhabi's future energy company. EWTE faced several internal and external challenges, such as building a qualified team to lead the project, confirming a purchaser for the power from Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority (SEWA), assembling the right technology for optimal plant operation, and financing the project, as the cost was very high. Due to these challenges, Quraishi developed a sustainable waste management program that ensured optimizing operation plant, maximizing production, and minimizing problems. There were some concerns, particularly how to improve the efficiency of the waste-to-energy (WTE) generation process
Osha Gourmet delivery-only kitchen : an attempt to overcome increased overhead by Tareq Alali( )

1 edition published in 2022 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Osha Gourmet, a high street and contemporary Emirati restaurant, was founded in 2014 by Hamza Kazim, in Abu Dhabi. Hamza successfully accelerated the restaurant's growth and generated a substantial profit during Osha's first six years. However, during the second and third quarters of 2019, Abu Dhabi's restaurant sector was disrupted by several factors, namely a sharp rise in labor and rent costs driven by a growing number of tourists, the entry of new international and regional brands, and an emerging consumer preference for buying food online as a result of the intensification of e-commerce, including mobile commerce applications and payment platforms. In response to these changes in the business environment, and after an intensive analysis of the restaurant's annual performance over previous years and trends in the restaurant industry, Hamza decided to change Osha Gourmet restaurant to delivery-only kitchen (no dining in, and relying on a food delivery platform to facilitate and deliver the food to the customers). Although the delivery-only kitchen strategy was a successful approach to the fundamental business practice of going where the market is, the delivery-only kitchen opened a scary new landscape and hurdles that the restaurant must address for long-term sustainable growth. This case study explores how Osha Gourmet restaurant became a delivery-only kitchen and the challenges it has faced since taking on this business model

Just Fresh : fresh juices from the desert! by Syed Zamberi Ahmad( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Just Fresh Juice is a small entrepreneurial venture in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), specialising in preparing all-fresh juices, special mixes and fruit salads. The purpose of this paper is to analyse how Just Fresh can maintain its competitive advantage, and how it could sustain its rapid growth in the market and gain more market share in the long run. Just Fresh focuses on satisfying its customers more effectively than its competitors through a competitive strategy of cost leadership (Papulova and Papulova, 2006), direct interaction with the customers through social media (Srinivasan, 2014) and creating a customer experience (Porter, 2008), as delivering a good customer experience is often more effective in building a competitive advantage than optimising internal processes
